My name is Bill Taylor, and I am the new owner of the Vine Kits brew-on-premise wine shop located in Mountainview Plaza on Gossett Road in West Kelowna.
I arrived here in the Okanagan at the age of 2 when my parents moved here to start their own wine business. At that age I wasn’t much interested in a wine shop, but I grew up locally, made my friends here and attended school in West Kelowna and later in Kelowna. I was very much involved in sports as a boy, especially baseball and golf (which is still one of my favorite activities). After graduating from high school, I enrolled in Okanagan College where I received my degree in Business Administration majoring in accounting.
During my teenage years I started working in my parent’s wine shop to earn spending money and this continued throughout high school. I learned a lot from my parents about the wine business starting at a young age and always enjoyed the cheerful atmosphere that you find in this type of business. However, I also wanted to see new things, so I moved to Vancouver to work in the insurance industry and later as an accountant.
Toward the end of 2022 I became aware that Wine Kitz in West Kelowna was up for sale, and I took the opportunity to acquire the store and start my own business that I was familiar with from my younger years. By this time my dad had retired but I have assembled a dynamic team consisting of myself and two part-time staff with nearly twenty years of experience in the business. The three of us work well together to ensure we produce the best possible wines and provide the great service our customers deserve.
It has been my pleasure returning to the beautiful Okanagan with family and friends and making new friends at Vine Kits.
Read what our customers have to say.
The new owner even though he seems young, impressed me with his efforts to do good by me. I am a former customer of Curtis (really liked dealing with him) but this new owner Bill goes the extra mile to make my wine making a pleasure. In fact, thinking I lost my order from last August, Bill found an order that was available to replace my losses. I am certainly willing to trust my wine making to him with confidence that he w I’ll do a good job.
I bottled two batches the other day. Bill is a wonderful young man, very helpful, knowledgeable and pleasant. He has very high standards, everything was extremely clean and organized. I ordered two more! We sampled both the red and white that evening, both are great. Gracias.
I was in Vine Kits (West Kelowna) with my friend today. We were so happy to meet the new owner Bill. He was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable about the different wine kits. I highly recommend this wine kits store and am looking forward to returning in June when our next kit is ready!
Okay, the new owner is awesome and service to match! I have been a customer for over 5 years and got caught up in some issues with the previous owner but I just booked my second batch with the new owner, Bill, and he is great! Super friendly service and love the new online notifications system you can sign up for! Highly recommend them!
I am a long time customer of Wine Kitz (Vine Kits) and the other day I had the opportunity to meet the new owner of Vine Kits in West Kelowna. I was very impressed with Bill and what he has done with the business in the short period of time he has owned it. He is professional, welcoming and friendly. I enjoyed chatting and learning how the back ground of the business is not new to him. I would recommend giving Vine Kits and Bill a chance to help you with all your wine needs.
I’ve been making my own wine for over twenty years and I am so glad Wine Kitz (now Vine Kits) reopened in Westbank. The store is well supplied with a large variety of types of wines. I’ve been stopping in a couple of times each month and the store is remarkably clean! Kudos to the new owner!
Welcome, Bill!! Although I will miss Curtis, Bill is showing great customer service and smooth transition. I have been a customer of Wine Kitz for several years and look forward to carrying on with Vine Kits! Excellent products.
Bill is exactly what this shop needed. Friendly, customer focused and committed to providing a great experience. I recently had the pleasure of bottling my first batch alongside Bill. A great way to spend some time on a Friday afternoon. Thank you Bill!
My first batch at this shop with the new owner and I am extremely pleased! I highly recommend you give Bill’s shop a try for your next wine batch, I’m sure you will also be impressed.
I made my wine today and was very impressed with the new owner Bill Taylor …Will be back to put a new batch on soon. Very happy with the service.
Had a great time bottling today Bill is very friendly well definitely get more wine made
